A Day That Changed My Life
This is not a review of the recording, but just a note on an amazing experience. My first Dead show. What a place to begin the long strange trip. The only songs I even knew from this setlist going in were Sugar Mag and Gimme Some Lovin. What a day!!! Been hooked ever since. If you"ve never been to the rocks GO!!! BTW if you stare at the rocks a lot then look at the crowd it puts kind of a greenish cast to everything.Also the Brokedown WAS the encore on this date not 9/7 as stated above.

Brokedown NOT the 2nd set opener!
I was at these shows, and the goofed up Broke Down Palace was NOT played on 9/5 at the start of the 2nd set; it was the encore on 9/7. In any case, the three shows were great-it was a gas to plugged in, melting from the rocks for a trio of day shows

Brokedown: You Guys Remember the Chorus?
I've been enjoying the show. The opening of the second set is hysterical as they shank it and then call mulligan. Very funny. So, I had to comment and now I'll add my other liner notes.
In the first set, I though the Candyman was nice. I'm a big fan of the Scar->Fire and I thought it had a little too much cow bell (don't get hostile, I'm just having a good time here).
The Estimated and Space had some nice echoes spinning around the room.
I enjoyed Brent on keys and Warf Rat and Gimme Some Lovin' were shining!
Nice listening. Not the best, not the worst, just the good ole Grateful Dead having fun at Red Rocks.

This was the only time that I ever really enjoyed seeing Day shows. Beautiful weather which after all of the annual Red Rocks rainouts is why they did these during the day. A bunch of us drove out from Chicago in a caravan and stayed at my Brother Scott's place (R.I.P.). I had a pickup with an open bed and 3 people in the back the whole way. My friend Patrick had this gorilla mask that he wore most of the way scarring people on I80. I remember the Lone Ranger soundtracks they were running between sets. These were crazy magical times!

I wouldnt of had it any other way either you made the right choice. (Esp if was some real clean liquid. The times/scene and venue of coarse were all there. Jerry must a been a blast to watch, wow Lucky you and the others who were there. Iam listening to the "Comes a Time" from 9-7-85 and its so sweet I really couldn't imagine. So real,authentic, original and passionate. How about the re-do on Brokedown. What a time that Sept Red Rocks 85 was. Love to see a video of this.

Its all about the attitude
Messy playing, but the experience was orgasmic. Dosed to the gills in a melting sandstone palace. I hadn't originally planned it that way, but the scene was too much to resist. A surreal landscape and colorful eyeballs. I think thats what was up with the band, too. But ya know how you always think others are along for the ride with you......
